About Me

SOLELY FOCUSED on DUI Defense Representation.  Numerous Awards for "Top 1 Percent," "Top Lawyer," "Top 100," "Top 40 Under 40, and "Top 10."


 


So, Why Should I Hire Attorney Brian Sloan over all the other lawyers?


 


This is a question many people ask themselves, and the answer is quite simple.  If you are charged with DUI, you want a DUI Attorney who FOCUSES on DUI Defense Representation.  


 


I am part of a rare breed of Attorneys who focus solely on DUI Defense Representation.  


 


Nearly every other "DUI Lawyer" on AVvo.com handle numerous other types of offenses.  Just look at thier pie charts.  Every other type of case they represent - Civil, Criminal, Divorce, Wills & Trusts, etc. - takes them away from concentrating on DUI Defense, and being up-to-date on the latest changes in DUI Representation.


 


I focus my legal practice on DUI Defense Representation only.


 


Just as you wouldn't want a Podiatrist (foot doctor) to conduct brain surgery on you - despite that they are both doctors - if you are charged with a DUI, you want an Attorney who has spent his career focusing on DUI Defense Representation.


 


I've spent the past 10+ years focusing solely DUI Defense Representation.  I've represented approximately 2,000 clients, and teach DUI Representation at statewide seminars every year.


 


I've done 100+ Felony & Misdemeanor trials, and received numerous Not Guilty Verdicts, Judgments of Innocence, Guilty on Lesser Included Offenses, and Granted Plea Deviations.


 


I am rated 10-out-of-10 on AVvo.com; 4.9-out-of-5.0 on Martindale Hubbell; I am the recipient of the SuperLawyers Southwest Rising Star Award for the last three years; named one of the Top Lawyers in 2013 by North Valley Magazine; named one of the Top 100 Lawyers by Arizona Finest Lawyers; acknowledged as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer Nationally by National Trial Lawyers, and named one of Arizona's Top 40 Lawyers Under 40 by National Trial Lawyers and American Society of Legal Advocates.


 


I was acknowledged as a Top 10 DUI Lawyer in Arizona by National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys, was the Featured Cover Attorney of Attorney at Law Magazine in August, 2013, and was also recognized as an "Attorney to Watch in 2015" by Attorney at Law Magazine in December, 2014.


 


Most recently, I was acknowledged as part of the "Top One Percent in the Nation" of Defense Lawyers by National Association of Distinguished Counsel.


 


All my accomplishments are too much to list on AVvo.com, but they are listed at my other website: www.ArizDUI.com.


 


 


I am a founding member of The Arizona DUI Team (www.AZDUITeam.com), and offer Experienced, Quality DUI representation at a very reasonable price.  My Legal Services Contracts offer flat fees, payment plans, and an "in-depth" Free Consultation.  There are no hidden fees, and my clients are clear about my representation. 


 


I have been described as "honest," and a "straight-shooter."  I am not a person who will only tell you what you want to hear, or feed you false hope or false information, just to get more money out of you.  You will hear the truth from me, and my honest opinion, so you can then make an informed decision on how you want to move forward with your case.


 


I have also developed an innovative form of Legal Representation that I call 'Bifurcated Representation,' which is unlike any other.  It is very beneficial for my clients, and ensures that my client is not paying for work I am not doing.


 


These core values have led to my success with my clients, with the prosecutors, and with the courts.


 


I offer my legal services in the representation of Misdemeanor offenses in the following areas:


 



  • DUI - Alcohol

  • DUI - Drugs

  • DUI - Medications

  • Extreme DUI

  • Super Extreme DUI

  • 2nd Time DUI

  • 2nd Time Extreme DUI

  • 2nd Time Super Extreme DUI
